Finally! I’ve been delaying showing you the master bedroom because it is such a large space and such a hodge podge of stuff!
It used to be the attic, but when the house was renovated and flipped, the entire attic was turned into the master bedroom and bathroom. You come up the stairs and it’s like being in a loft. You’re just already in the master bedroom.
Todd and I both came into this union with a queen size bed. My bed is being used in our guest bedroom and Todd’s was in our second guest bedroom (that I mentioned was turned into the study), but is now in storage. The space for the master bed was very large, so we decided to get a king size bed when we got married.
We ordered the bed from Calico Corners and picked up the upholstery fabric. The bedding was ordered from Eastern Accents and I love it so much! It makes the room so serene. We had the lamps before we got the bedding and I think it all goes together very nicely.
Before we got this bedding we were using my sorority t-shirt quilt on the bed because it was the only thing large enough. We couldn’t decide on bedding that we loved and I was reluctant to buy anything because, at the time, we had two dogs in our bed with us. I wasn’t about to buy some gorgeous silk bedding and then let the dogs get hair and drool all over it. Then I got pregnant and told those doggies that there just wasn’t room for me, my big fat belly, Todd, Boudreaux, and Fiona in the bed. So Boudreaux and Fiona had to go. We ordered our bedding and ordered a large dog bed from Orvis that would accommodate Boudreaux and Fiona.
I should have seen the inevitable. Before ordering the bed from Orvis, I already had a dog bed that was Boudreaux’s before he started sleeping in our bed. I ordered the large bed because everything one dog has the other one wants. So I just knew that they’d both end up in the bed at the same time. Wrong. Look who sleeps on the big ass dog bed.
And look who prefers to sleep on the floor because he wouldn’t be caught dead cuddling with Fiona.
So here’s the rest of our room. Lots of space, right? It has basically become a dog run where they play and romp every morning.
Then we have this other nook that I’d love to turn into more closet space. Right now we keep the Pack ‘n Play there in case I have to put Hudson in there while I’m doing laundry or taking a shower.
And here is our laundry area. It’s quite tiny (and full of clean sheets and towels! Yikes!)— in addition to a massive kitchen, my next house will have a massive laundry room.
This is our closet. We do a decent job of sharing. Most of Todd’s clothes are stored in the two chests of drawers in the bedroom and my sweaters are stored downstairs in the dresser in the guest bedroom. Oh yeah, my next house will have two massive his and hers closets.
And the master bathroom.
So there’s our master bedroom. Sorry I couldn’t get it cleaned up anymore for you!
